SSNPod #234 | Don Lemon Claps on the Two and the Four Now? | #saysomethingnew

Smashed knees, neoblaxploitation, and lessons in ethnic rhythm theory abound in the latest episode of the Say Something Nice Podcast. After recapping the Golden Globes and Future President Oprah Winfrey’s speech in support of #TimesUp, the SSN Crew reviews the new films “Proud Mary” and “I, Tonya,” break down the TV shows “The Chi” and “Rick & Morty”, and discuss whether or not white people actually clap on the one and the three or not (with insider commentary from John).
